Product Description

Review

Lorenz sought to trace the origins of human aggressive impulses. Now, 20 years later, the Lorenzian mantle--considerably transformed--has slipped onto the shoulders of a young Dutch ethologist named Frans de Waal. Once again we have a keen observer who immerses himself in the social lives of other animals. Like Lorenz, de Waal is eager to let his thoughts range widely and speculatively in order to extract from comparisons of human beings with other animals take-home messages about global issues of peace and war. -- Sarah Blaffer Hrdy "New York Times Book Review"

About the Author

Frans B. M. de Waal is C. H. Candler Professor of Primate Behavior in the Psychology Department and Director of Living Links, part of the Yerkes Primate Center, Emory University. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

A Great Work of our time 2 Dec. 2006
By Morgan Witthoft - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Very good book for those interested in primate behavior. Or, for those not yet interested in primate behavior. Or for anybody sentient.

The writing and storytelling are vibrant enough that you can read this for pure fun.

The level of insight, the author's power of questioning, the mix of rigorous observation and inference with boundary-crossing insight, are thrilling and rare.

The offer to improve our understanding of ourselves along with primates makes this a book of great power.

I read this several years ago and still find myself dwelling on the ideas. I find myself viewing the world differently and more hopefully because of it. A pity I lent my copy out one time too many. Maybe I'll buy another.
